Abstract:

In the Water-Related Land Resources Appendix, focus will first be placed on the general land use within the Bay Region. Following this, the various land resources will be investigated including the intensive land resources, the agricultural and forest land resources, and the mineral resources. Also included will be an inventory of historic, archeological, and natural environmental areas of the Bay Region. Generally, for each of the elements assessed in this Appendix, an analysis is made of their present status including existing problems and conflicts and current Federal, State, and local management responsibilities as they apply to the land resources, and future needs and problem areas. The final chapter of the Appendix discusses the means with which to satisfy identified needs and the future studies required to develop the land management portion of an overall water-land management program for the Chesapeake Bay Region.
